In 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson created Hispanic Heritage Week to celebrate Hispanic culture. In 1988, President Ronald Reagan expanded the week to a full month, creating what is now known as Hispanic Heritage Month from September 3 to October 13.

Due to trade and travel along the Santa Fe Trail, the City of Olathe began a deep connection with Hispanic culture throughout its history—a connection that continues today. Join the City during the month as Olathe honors Hispanic heritage with a number of special events.
